RESTORA­TION TIME­LINE

Classics Monthly - - Reader Resto Mercedes-benz 220 Fintail -

A lot of cor­ro­sion needed to be cut out of the 220's lower pan­els.

New re­pair pan­els were care­fully stitch welded into place.

A re­place­ment rear bumper for the 220 was a lucky in­ter­net find.

New bushes were fit­ted to the over­hauled front sus­pen­sion.

Other than a good cleanup, no work was done to the engine.

A lot of time and ef­fort had gone into get­ting to this stage.

The re­paired un­der­side of the car was painted body colour.

A stain­less steel ex­haust was the restora­tion's fin­ish­ing touch.
